I am a child of the 80’s, and was it ever a great time to be a child. I mean yes there was Presidents Reagan and Bush (1) but that didn’t matter much to me. There were music videos and boy bands and men dressing like women making great music. One of those great music makers was El DeBarge of the DeBarge family.

Major in the army and for about a year I lived in an army town.
All the John McCain POW stories I have heard is how he was broken and bruised and even when the opportunity to leave came up he said “Not without my daughter!!” (Sorry old Sally Field reference.) Now you’re running for President of the
Well I will tell you what. Let’s do that Senator McCain. If we can turn the page on the economy then let’s turn the page on the
Well Senator McCain, I can’t wait for November 4th to come. Hopefully we will be able to “Turn the page “on you. And trust me, on that day I will not be playing El Debarge in your honor!
